Great Weekend Getaways for Every Couple

Take some time off to reconnect with your partner on the perfect weekend getaway. There’s nothing like some time alone doing the things that you love together. Every couple have different interests and travel differently. So where should you go? Here are some ideas of amazing weekend getaways for every couple that you can get to in less than 5 hours.

1. For Sun and Sea Worshippers - The Maldives

It is without a doubt that The Maldives is home to one of the best beaches in the world. With its unrivalled luxury, stunning white-sand beaches and crystal clear ocean waters, The Maldives is the obvious choice for a luxurious beach weekend getaway. Only a mere 4-hour flight away from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, this tiny, remote Indian Ocean paradise is more accessible than one might think. Spend the day snorkelling, diving, or reclining on a lounger by the beach with cocktail in hand and watch some of the most breath-taking sunsets you would ever see.

2. For The Zen Couple - Lumbini, Nepal

It doesn’t get as zen as the birthplace of Buddha. Lumbini is home to a number of temples and monasteries, and the World Peace Pagoda constructed by Nipponzan Myohoji monks to inspire peace and unite all people of all races and creeds in the search for world peace. Grab a bicycle to explore the rural terrain, get a taste of the local cuisine which is a mixture of Indian and Nepali cooking, or sign up for a meditation class. Even if you’re not religious or spiritual, this serene landscape will surely quieten your spirit.

3. For Adventure Junkies - Chiang Mai, Thailand

Nestled amongst forested foothills, Chiang Mai is known for its slower pace and laid-back atmosphere compared to its southern counterpart, Bangkok. Apart from the elephant sanctuaries and souvenir markets, Chiang Mai is a hive of activity for the adventurous. You can go mountain biking in the Doi Suthep-Pui National Park, which is home to two of northern Thailand’s most scared peaks, trekking on elephant back through the local hills and forests, zip-lining through the canopies of the rainforest, or waterfall abseiling at Doi Inthanon.

4. For Couples Who Love to Shop – Hong Kong

Hong Kong is undeniably the shopping mecca of Asia. From luxury goods and international designer brands to up-and-coming local fashion brands to the busy night markets, Hong Kong is any shopaholic’s dream city to spend a weekend in. With shopping malls like APM that only close at 2am, you don’t have to confine your shopping hours to only during the day. Complete your weekend shopping spree with a few cocktails at the end of the day at one of Hong Kong’s many stylish bars like Ping Pong Gintoneria in Sai Ying Pun and The Woods cocktail bar in Central. And of course no trip to Hong Kong is complete without a quick stop at Victoria Harbour to marvel at the vibrant lights and snap that essential selfie to remember your weekend getaway in Hong Kong.

5. For a Spot of Culture and Heritage, Hoi An, Vietnam

Time seems to slow down in this quaint little town in Central Vietnam which used to be a major port in the 16th to 18th centuries, and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. What used to be homes of Japanese, Chinese and Vietnamese traders back in the day have now been converted into cafes, character bars and galleries. Take your time to stroll along the Tho Bun riverbank and admire the unique architecture that reflects both its indigenous and foreign heritage. Go on a bike ride to discover the lush countryside or enjoy the day on Cua Dai beach. Hoi An is the perfect weekend getaway for couples who want to take things slow and just not really do anything.

6. For The Foodie Couple - Taipei, Taiwan

In 2015, CNN Travel carried out a poll on social media asking where their readers’ favourite culinary destinations in the world are. And Taipei, Taiwan received the coveted number one spot on the top 10 list of favourite culinary destinations. It’s no wonder, since Taiwan’s philosophy on eating is to eat often and eat well. Taiwanese cuisine is unique to this island state and is a mixture of Min Nan, Teo Chew and Hokkien cuisine with significant Japanese influences. Foodies will be thrilled to explore the 20 or so streets in Taipei dedicated to snacking.

7. For The Couple On A Budget - Mabul Island, Sabah

Just off the coast of Semporna is Mabul Island, known as one of the best muck diving destinations in the world and arguably one of the richest single destinations for exotic small marine life. This tiny island paradise may not be as luxurious as the Maldives but its crystal clear waters and multi-coloured corals and marine life will still dazzle you. Plus it’s easier on the pocket. If you aren’t a diver, there’s still plenty of ways to discover this tiny island and its marine inhabitants like snorkelling, ocean kayaking and island hopping.
